Isn’t this a beautiful cookie?
THIS is my favorite oatmeal cookie. I know, it’s a little late to remind you since Easter was a week ago and if you have any hard boiled Easter eggs left, you probably don’t want to use those. But I’m telling you, boil up a few more, you’ve got to try these cookies! Back in October 2008 a couple fabulous baking buddies, Anna at Cookie Madness , Rita at Clumbsy Cookie and I collaborated over emails and came up with this cookie that uses hard boiled eggs. The ingredients are first pulsed in a food processor, cold butter is pulsed together with the flour, then the sugar, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and oats are added for a few more quick pulses. Lastly, the egg is added. After pulsing it together, it will still be a little crumbly and you’ll see flecks of the egg, but it all comes together when you dump it in a bowl and add the raisins and walnuts. And after the cookies bake, you cannot see the egg, but you’ll have a wonderful oatmeal cookie, thick and delicious.
